Lumiere Standard Poodles
BISS Ch. Astoria Love Is In The Air x Ch. Lumiere's Here For A Good Time
Born May 13th, 2012
Cesare decided to stay with us at 7 weeks old

Here is a link to his first training session at 10 weeks old:
Cesare at 8 weeks old
Cesare at 3 months old
Cesare at 4 months old
Cesare at 5 months old

Cesare's first 2 points at 9 months, from the Bred By Exhibitor Class

Cesare took a road trip to California, and was groomed by Martin Gregory.
  Cesare was put into pattern at 11 months, and at 13 months he was shown by Terry Bernier. On his first weekend out he was Winners Male the first day for 3 points, Winners Male the 2nd day for 3 points, Reserve Winners Dog at the Poodle Club of Canada Specialty, and on the last day Best of Winners for 5 points, to finish his Championship. Cesare is now my 10th home-bred champion.

Cesare was shown by Terry at 14 months old as a special,
going Best of Breed for 3 days, and on the 2nd day adding a Group 2nd.

Cesare sat out to grow coat at home before he embarked on his American Championship, but we asked Kim Russell if she would be able to show him for us at the 2013 PCA Regional.  She did a wonderful job presenting him.

We brought Cesare to Alan Waterman in March 2014, and in just 3 weekends Alan finished Cesare, with two 4 point majors, followed by finishing with a 5 point major.

Alan presented Cesare in the Open Dog Class at the 2014 PCA Specialty, and Cesare brought the house down when he went Reserve Winners Dog, the first apricot in history to win such an honour!!!  So many thanks to Debbie Cozart for paving the road, and of course to Team Waterman for a job well done.
  We sent Cesare back to Alan in March, 2015, to get him geared to make his debut as a Special at PCA 2015, and he got his feet wet nicely winning the breed over numberous specials and on to a Group 2.
  Cesare made the cut and was a clear crowd favorite at PCA 2015. Here are some wonderful candid shots.
Cesare returned to the Poodle Club of America National Specialty in 2016, and once again was a crowd favorite, becoming the first apricot to make the final cut.  Here are some candid shots.
